Posh Mexico City Living Room

Created with the cityscape in mind, the living room contains neutral furnishings with clean lines so as not to detract from the breathtaking view.

Chic Living Room With Potted Tree

A tall potted tree brings the outdoors into this contemporary living space. The sitting area feels bright and open thanks to neutral furnishings and large picture windows.

White Single-Cushion Sofa

A few straightforward pieces, each with great character, pull the living room together. The white sofa, with its one continuous cushion, is the standout piece.

Neutral Armchair in High-Contrast Living Room

Amid the largely black and white interior, a few neutral accents are warmly welcomed in the living room.

Traditional Black & White Armchairs

A pair of tufted armchairs soften the modern lines in the living room.

Recessed TV Alcove

Off to the side, the unadorned media cabinet features a custom recess for the big screen TV.

Leather Wingback Chair

The curvy silhouette of the leather armchair imparts a graceful elegance.

Accessories With Organic Appeal

The decor includes a mix of natural accessories that's in keeping with the end table's organic aesthetic.

Artwork is Food for Thought in Dining Room

The offbeat pairing of a pale wood dining table and modern chrome pendants is fresh and lively. Bold artwork commands attention at the head of the table.

Dining Chair With Modern Slipcover

Pattern doesn't have to mean a flurry of shapes. Here, a simple geometric pattern enhances the tailored design of a chair slipcover.

Mixed Media in the Spotlight

This mixed-media artwork is bold and gritty without being gloomy.

Large Antler Chandelier

The marble table has a strong personality that's enhanced by the large antler chandelier. Robust in both shape and texture, the light fixture is the focal point in the breakfast room.

Pinstripe Armchairs With Chrome Legs

The home features a casual conference area with chairs upholstered in pinstripe fabric.

Framed Coral in Family Room

Above the sofa, framed coral adds a decidedly coastal touch to this landlocked family room. Black and white landscape photography invigorates the far wall.

Dramatic Artwork in Lounge

Large scale artwork sets a dramatic tone in the lounge, while a chrome end table cozies up to the relaxed chaise.

Modern Bedroom With Gray & White Palette

Soft and layered bed linens take the edge off this modern bedroom. The bedding's stark charcoal-and-white palette is picked up in the color-blocked drapes for a coordinated design.  

Magnificent Bathroom With Modern Double Vanity

A gray-and-white palette strikes a majestic note in the master bathroom. A modern double vanity keeps a low profile while providing valuable storage space.

Majestic Mirror

Hung on a mirrored wall, the etched mirror creates an icy, layered look in the master bathroom.

Vanity Stool in Marble-Clad Bathroom

A ribbed vanity stool tucks below the countertop in the marble-clad bathroom.

Solid Marble Vanity

The bathroom branches out with a striking marble vanity paired with a floor-to-ceiling mirror and mosaic tile walls.
